What is propitiation? (n) prō-pi-shē-ā-shən

But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it— 22 the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God's righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins. 26 It was to show his righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus. Romans 3:21-26

Cross Encounter with Alice

A couple of Sundays ago I took the cross out to the corner of Sixteenth Street and Grand Ave. in Grover Beach. As I approached the corner, I could see a person dressed up as the Statue of Liberty. This is Alice. Alice is dressed up as the Statue of Liberty because Alice works for one of those tax preparation companies that hire sign-holders to advertise for them. This is my cross encounter with Alice.

Please remember to offer up prayer for Alice in the days, weeks, and months to come. Alice is one of those people who I will never forget. I pray that you too will not soon forget Alice.
